Welcome to Quarry Hill's Blog!

Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT, founded 1946 by Barbara and Irving Fiske, is Vermont's oldest alternative community and at one time was probably also its largest. In the 60s -80s, as many as 90 people lived here.
It was and is visited each year, often in summer (but in every season, really) by visitors from all over the world.
We welcome interesting and creative people who are peaceful, bring no weapons, don't believe in hitting children or killing animals, and enjoy the beauty of Vermont and of themselves.

Most of us do not adhere to any particular dogma or religion, though many do find Eastern philosophy closest to our own thought (some of us are also members of the Quakers/Society of Friends).
We value the individual, particularly people who are energetic and have a sense of humor.
Visitors are welcome-- and prospective residents, too. There are some places for rent, others for sale. If interested, get in touch!
And, please follow the Blog and comment whenever you like!

"The symbol is the enemy of the reality, and the reality is ever one's true guide, true friend, true companion, and true self." Irving Fiske, 1908-1990

So Mad Men tried... to show what the Sixties were REALLY like.

To make up for its foolish error about St. Marks PL by taking characters (and US) to the Electric Circus, which was a sort of dance and groove out joint on St Marks Pl (It had been a Polish hall for celebrations called the Dom and some other things).

They showed a light show that I assume may have been meant to be The Joshua Light Show... but I am not sure. I saw the light show at The Electric Circus once. Never had money to go to things that cost anything.
All around me was the Village, with all the culture and all the energy-- I never went to a single Rock concert, however-- No Fillmore East. I went twice, that's wrong. Went to see "The Enlightenment of the Buddha" by Timothy Leary (a light show of another kind) and to hear my beloved Incredible String Band play.

Be thou the joyful player!"
